Nanopowders of copper indium diselenide were produced with five different organic solvents: ethylenediamine, triethanolamine, oleylamine, oleic acid, and polyetheramine. We successfully synthesized pure CIS nanopowders at a temperature of 240°C at three different durations of 10 h, 20 h, and 40 h with a one-step process. This shorter time method offers important cost advantages in manufacturing. Polyetheramine and oleic acid were used for the first time in literature for CIS synthesis in an
